You may or may not have read about this hot tip before, but I can guarantee it will blow your pregnant mind!! 

When I first encountered reflux during my first pregnancy, I went down the classic antacid route and although they tasted delicious, they did absolutely nothing for my heartburn.

I asked my amazing holistic doctor if she knew what would help, and was a little surprised when she gave me this one simple solution: 


1 teaspoon of bicarb soda dissolved in a shot of water.

Yep, that simple mamas.

Fair warning, it tastes like wet fish and is not pleasant to drink, but that's why I recommend mixing it into as little water as possible (while still maintaining a liquid consistency, not turning it into a paste) and shotting it. Sipping that shit in a full glass of water is foul. I also think it takes longer for the effects to kick in if it's not in a 'shot'.

After about 3-5 minutes, you'll feel the need to burp. It feels like waiting for a sneeze that doesn't come, but luckily the burp always does (for me, anyway). And ohhhh mama, it's always a deep, insanely satisfying burp.

After a few more burps, you'll notice the burning in your chest and throat has dissipated. That's because bicarb soda is a base and neutralises the acidity in your stomach which causes the burning sensation.

I hope this helps a pregnant mama in need!

Size Guide


Buying clothes online can be tricky business, especially when you've just had a baby and your body has changed drastically. I've been there and can totally relate!

We try to offer as much advice on sizing and fit on every product listing, as each style is different and designed to fit a certain way. We're also providing our models detailed bust, waist and hip measurements to help you choose the right size for you. 

The Moolk collection is designed specifically for postpartum mums and for this reason alone, we've made our sizing on the 'generous' side for 2 reasons:

  1. Because nobody has time for tight fitting anything! A little room to move over the 3 B's (boobs, booty, belly) is much better than a not enough.
  2. Because no mama needs their clothes telling them they're 2 sizes bigger than they used to be, even though they're not really, because clothes seem to be shrinking in size these days.


As we're now designing and manufacturing all pieces here at Moolk HQ, we now have more control over sizing and consistency across the board - yay! So below is an updated general sizing chart for your quick reference. You'll find your measurements land smack bang in the middle of 2 sizes #annoying! But please keep in mind measurements act as a guide only. I highly recommend you read the sizing tips on each product listing, as they're more detailed and reflect the individual design and fit of the garment and will often say "if you're in between sizes, we recommend sizing up/down for this style".
